There was a video conversation posted Feb 4, 2016. The participants were Robert Wright, and Heather Hurlburt. The topic of conversation was spirituality, and life in Washington DC.

At the 27:14 mark, the conversation turned to people who work in government. Mr. Wright quoted a longtime Washington observer. He had never met a national elected official who was not an asshole. Ms. Hurlburt then named three politicians, with the phrase “not an asshole” after his name.

After a pause, Ms. Hurlburt said “Hillary Clinton. not an asshole …. I worked for her, and she is, in person, to individual people, a deeply good human being.” PG thought this was the best endorsement of Mrs. Clinton yet. He made a clip of the comment, and posted it in various venues.

After posting the quote, PG decided to go back and hear a bit of the context. The first three men to be labelled non-assholes were Chris Murphy, Mo Udall, and Tim Kaine. This was in February, five months before Senator Kaine was nominated to be Vice President.

In October 1992, there was a campaign rally in Woodruff Park. Al Gore, Tipper Gore, and Hillary Clinton were all there. Tipper Gore said that, in person, Hillary Clinton was just as warm and friendly (not an exact quote) in private, as she was in public. PG started to go back to the office, when he saw the President of the firm. “I guess we are both playing hookey.”
